This article details how to download and install SketchUp and the EasyKitchen library. The process of installing the library itself is not complicated, but it differs from installing ordinary programs on a PC, due to the fact that EasyKitchen is a library for the SketchUp program, and not a separate application. So please follow the instructions carefully. It is enough to do the installation once, after which the library will always be available in the SketchUp program.

Download and install SketchUp

The first thing you need to work with the EasyKitchen library is the SketchUp program itself. If you have it, then immediately proceed to the description of downloading and installing the library. If not, then it can be downloaded from the Repository section. To do this, you must have at least a free EasyKitchen DEMO subscription. Links in the repository are available only if you have the appropriate subscription.


SketchUp Make 2017 in English is available for download on our website. You can also download SketchUp from the official website of the program at this link. To work with the EasyKitchen library, you need a PRO or Make version of SketchUp at least 2017.

After downloading the archive, you need to unzip and then run the installation of SketchUp.

Make sure your computer username is not in Cyrillic. For the stable operation of the SketchUp program and plugins, the PC username must be in Latin, and not be user (with a small u).

After the installation is complete, launch the SketchUp program:

A window like this will appear (depending on the version of SketchUp) in which you need to select a template in which you will work. In our case, it is "Architectural Design - Millimeters". And so that this window does not appear anymore, uncheck the box in the lower left corner of the window. After that, click on the "Start using SketchUp" button. This is how the workspace of the program looks like:

Now let's move on to downloading and installing the Easykitchen library.

Library download

Installing the PRO version of the EasyKitchen library is no different from installing the DEMO version. Only for the PRO version, a plug-in for replacing and generating a report, as well as a Redcut file for processing a report, is additionally available.

So, first you need to download the library and related files. To do this, you must have at least a free EasyKitchen DEMO subscription. All files available in your subscription are available for download in the Repository section:

Репозиторий

Both individual library components and complete packages are available for download here. Download the corresponding archive with the EasyKitchen library.

After the archive with the library and additional files has been downloaded, you can proceed to the installation.

Installing the EasyKitchen library

After you have downloaded the archive with the library, you should unzip it to any convenient folder on your computer.

Inside the archive, just in case, there is a text file describing the installation of the library.

Now go to the SketchUp program.

The tray window is located on the right side of the program. In it we find the tab "Components":

Here you need to add a folder (namely a folder, not a file) with the purchased library. To add it to the "Components" tab, you need to click on the arrow:

A menu will open in which you need to select the item "Open or create a local collection ...".​

We find the folder with the purchased library on the computer, go into it and click the "Select Folder" button. That's it, the collection has been added. Quite often questions arise with this action. The user, out of habit, looks for a file or files in the opened folder, and the folder is empty. It is not empty, just in this case you need to add the folder, not the files.

To pin the library in SketchUp, click on the same arrow again and in the drop-down menu, click on the "Add to Favorites" item. Now you can always quickly return to the library by clicking on the arrow next to the house icon:

In the drop-down menu, select your library and it will immediately appear in the "Components" tab.

It remains only to go to the desired folder and get the required module from there.

​General view of EasyKitchen library folders:

The EasyKitchen library has been added to SketchUp. You can already work with her!
